In maths, we have continued our work on shape and looked at how to draw shapes with a ruler, making sure we have straight lines and equal sides - if they're needed. We created pictures of houses with different shapes; triangle for the roof, square for the house, rectangle for the door. We have also been counting the number of vertices on shapes and this usually matches with the number of sides a 2d shape has. We have investigated how many lines of symmetry you can find in different shapes.
In English, we have been writing sentences with conjunctions in the middle of them. For example, 'The little old lady was cross.' can be turned into a much more exciting sentence 'The little old lady was cross BECAUSE all of the animals had messed up her house.' We have then moved on to planning that 2 more animals enter the house and get up to mischief. These lines have to rhyme - it's been a tricky task but we're sure the stories will turn out brilliantly.
In art, we have carried on exploring water colour alongside other different materials. What does it look like with crayon added on top? How about black pen? The children have been left to explore their artistic inspirations and using the different pens and pencils to make them more life like.
In PSHE, we have been learning the importance of working together and this week we had to design a 'welly' together and decide upon a common goal that we could both achieve.
In geography, we have been imaging that we could fly to any destination in the world (and travelling there by the aid of Google Maps). We have planned the routes we need to take. Parents watch out, you could be in for an expensive summer holiday this year!
